Karachi:Frustrated fans thronged Karachi stadium for the first Limited Overs International match between arch-rivals India and Pakistan only to be told the sales had been delayed by a day.

"The ticket sale for the first One-day will start from Sunday and electronic tickets have been arranged, so that only genuine ticket holders enter the stadium," said a Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) statement on Saturday.

Officials refused to disclose the reason for the delay as it was earlier announced tickets for each match would go on sale a week before the match.

India arrives in Lahore on Wednesday on their first full tour of Pakistan since 1989-90 and plays the first of five One-day games in Karachi on March 13.

PCB put 20 percent of tickets on sale via the Internet, a first for a sports event in Pakistan, and them snapped up within three days.
